Note the PS2 standing in as a DVD player.
Mmm, nice speakers. (No, not the Missions) How do they sound with the Naim?
The Totems are very nice, first time I've ever experienced the speakers "dissappearing" was with this setup. They melt away with Jazz and Classical. They feel quite effortless, and they add the "bite" to guitar and saxophone that I found a lot of other loudspeakers sacrificed. And my god the bass response is stunning, I thought the published specs of 42-20000Hz were sheer optimism but wow. They punish an awful lot of floorstanders in the Bass department. My only regret is that I have to use those hideous home-made speaker stands.
Only two observations:
Right speaker may be a bit close to the turntable, and could be giving a degree of feedback at higher levels, and I'm not sure if the Totems are magnetically shielded - if not the left one could give you some problems with colour-staining on the the TV tube.
Otherwise, nice set-up, though I take your point about the stands!
